American Folklife Center Announces 2014 Archie Green Fellowships
Friday, January 24, 2014
The American Folklife Center is pleased to announce it will award several fellowships of up to $45,000 each for the period July 1, 2014–June 30, 2015 to support new, original, independent field research into the culture and traditions of contemporary
American workers and/or occupational groups found within the United States.
The Archie Green Fellowships have been established to honor the
memory of Archie Green (1917–2009), a pioneering folklorist who
championed the establishment of the American Folklife Center at the
Library of Congress. As a scholar, Green documented and
analyzed the culture and traditions of American workers and encouraged
others to do the same.
The Archie Green Fellowships are intended to support new research
in this area, and to generate significant digital archival collections
(audio recordings, photographs, videos, and fieldnotes), which will be
preserved in the American Folklife Center archive
and made available to researchers and the public.
The deadline for 2014 Archie Green Fellowship applications is March 10, 2014.
